In India too the film is about to enter the Rs 300 crore club. Its collection stands at Rs 295.18 crore. The excitement of the audiences has not worn off as the film enters its third week. Sanju also stars Paresh Rawal, Vicky Kaushal, Manisha Koirala, Dia Mirza, Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Jim Sarbh among others.
Despite all the success, Sanju is also receiving criticism that it goes easy on Sanju’s crimes and tries to paint a positive image of the actor. Sanjay Dutt himself responded to the criticism in an interview with India Today recently. He said, “I don’t think anyone would spend Rs 30-40 crore to change his image. That is too much of an amount. I have told the truth and the truth has been accepted by India, and the box office collection shows that.”
